Haikyu!! Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump Gets Main Trailer

Following the release of a key visual, Haikyu!! Decisive Battle at the Garbage Dump revealed a brand new trailer at today’s Jump Festa ’24 stage. The movie is slated to premiere on February 16, 2024, in Japan, however, it will not be the last installment of the franchise as a second movie is also in the works. The trailer features “ORANGE” by SPYAIR as the theme song:

Ayumu Murase, Kaito Ishikawa, Yuichi Nakamura, and Yuki Kaji attended the stage and revealed that this was the first time they were able to talk about the movie since finishing post-production. Cast answered questions about the biggest challenges: Nakamura said it was difficult to capture emotional expression, especially with Kenma, because he talks quietly and never yells and Kaji agreed with this observation. Nakamura also talked about the long recording sessions; Ishikawa also mentioned them, adding that it was difficult to get used to recording in groups since that was not possible during COVID-19 pandemic.

The first movie shares the Japanese title with Haikyu!! Gomisuteba no Kessen (The Dumpster Battle), which is the 294th chapter of the manga. It will cover the much-anticipated clash between Karasuno and Nekoma teams.

Production I.G is returning to animate the movie, after also working on the TV anime adaptation of the Haikyu (stylized as Haikyu!!) series. The first season aired in 2014, followed by the sequel which started in the Fall of 2015 and finished during the Winter of 2016, after 25 episodes. Season 3, titled Haikyu!! Karasuno High School vs Shiratorizawa Academy had 10 episodes that aired throughout the Fall of 2016. Haikyu!! Riku vs Kuu OVA serves as its sequel. The latest installment of the anime Haikyuu!! To the Top aired in two cours – first in Winter 2020 and second in Fall 2020. In addition to the TV anime, the franchise also spawned multiple recap movies, OVAs, side stories, and an omake.

Haikyu is based on a manga by Haruichi Furudate which was serialized in Weekly Shonen Jump from 2012 to 2020. The manga ended after 405 chapters, compiled into 45 volumes. Viz Media licensed it in English and describes the plot as:
After losing his first and last volleyball match against Tobio Kageyama, “the King of the Court,” Shoyo Hinata swears to become his rival after graduating middle school. But what happens when the guy he wants to defeat ends up being his teammate?!

Furudate drew new artwork for the Haikyu!! Volume 33.5 that will be given out to moviegoers in Japan. Special booklet includes some never seen stories and details from characters’ daily lives.
